Privacy is one of Xiaomi's core values and protecting your privacy is our top priority.

Privacy has always been among Xiaomi's core values. Following the privacy principle, we adopt the concept of privacy by design in our product development process. We are also constantly trying to use more innovative technologies to protect privacy.

Privacy Innovations

Your privacy is protected by our advanced innovative technologies.

We believe that privacy-enhancing technologies allow us to provide the users with exciting products that do not come at the cost of privacy.

Differential Privacy

As one of the most popular privacy-enhancing technologies, differential privacy enables Xiaomi to gain insights into the quality performance and user experience of our phones without infringing on your privacy. In our practice, some statistical noise will be added to the data before it leaves your device. We can only receive a set of obfuscated data, and will not be able to learn what the original data is. We are not able to identify you in the data set either. We will aggregate this kind of data only to get the conclusions we need.

Trusted Execution Environment

Based on the trusted execution environment, a secure operating system can be run on the device, which has an independent kernel and is completely isolated at the hardware level. It is a core component to ensure device information security. MiTEE is developed by Xiaomi, which can be deployed on smartphones, pads, watches, and other IoT devices. It provides protection for password unlocking, fingerprint payment and digital rights management.

Edge Computing and MACE

Edge Computing is a privacy-friendly technique that can perform data analysis and calculation on your device, instead of sending it to the cloud server, thus protecting your data and minimizing the risk of any form of data leakage. When you use the fingerprint or face recognition on your Xiaomi phone to unlock it or make a payment, the calculation and processing of your sensitive biometric data are only performed in the secure region on your phone.
Mobile AI Compute Engine (or MACE for short) is an open source deep learning inference framework developed by Xiaomi. By using MACE, more analysis and calculation on your personal data can be finished just on your device. For example, MACE is used in Xiaomi Health to track your activity and sleep by analyzing the status of your phone. We are also expanding the application of MACE to more scenarios.
